Everyone is now conscious of raised cholesterol as a marker of potential diseases of the heart and brain— the consequences of clogged arteries. In 1987, at an international gathering of cancer research scientists in Greece, I exposed the scientific reasons why increased cholesterol production in the body is a direct consequence of chronic dehydration. 

We have to assume that the genetic structure of each cell empowers it to act independently, if environmental conditions are not to its advantage. The cells of the human body have the same capability as bacteria to adapt to their environment by altering their membrane structure. Similarly, human body cells alter the cholesterol content of their membranes to prevent the uncontrolled seepage of water in or out of their inner domains. Normally, water is meant to seep into the cell at a slow but exact rate. 

Cells also possess a mechanism for getting rid of excess water. However, if the cell water has to be kept inside because its environment is becoming comparatively dry, the cell membrane has to be sealed off. Cholesterol deposits within the structure of the membrane carry out the process of sealing off the membrane—the very pores that allow water to diffuse through get sealed off. 

Normally, when food is eaten, water and enzymes have to be poured into the stomach and intestines. The enzymes break the food particles into their smaller building blocks by inserting one molecule of water at each of the amino acids' many points of bondage that make up the protein structure and mass. Free water is used up to allow this action to take place. The result is that the body has less water and more soluble solid matter that needs to be transported in the now comparatively water-depleted blood and lymph circulation.

The result of this digestive process is concentrated blood that leaves the intestines and goes through the liver. In the liver, some of this food load is taken away from the blood, and the balance is poured into the heart at the right side. At this right heart entrance, the lymph from the intestine also pours into the blood. The first place that this concentrated and now circulating blood visits is the lung tissue. Here more water in the form of vapour is lost from the circulating blood during the breathing process. 

Now this concentrated blood is brought to the left side of the heart and pumped out. It goes to the arteries that feed the heart itself, then to the arteries of the brain, and then to the main body artery, called the aorta. When this concentrated blood reaches the brain centers that deal with the osmotic regulation of the body, they 
signal the conscious mind that the body is short of water. The alarm for thirst develops, and the person feels the urge to drink water.

There is a fairly long time gap between the exposure of the liver cells and the cell lining of the arteries to the concentrated blood and the time water is taken into the body. The time gap of water intake after food and the dehydrating influence of concentrated blood is sufficient to cause a cholesterol-amassing and generating activity in those cells that come in contact with the concentrated blood—such as the liver and the lining of the arteries. In time, a physiological pathway for the manufacture and deposit of cholesterol in the lining of the blood vessels will occur. The only way the cells that cannot form cholesterol can protect themselves is to pick up cholesterol from the circulation and deposit it in their membranes. 

Raised cholesterol level is a sign that the cells of the body have developed a defense mechanism against the stronger osmotic forces of blood. The concentrated blood would normally keep drawing water out through the cell membranes. Cholesterol is a natural sort of waterproof clay that, when poured in the gaps of the cell membrane, helps keep the membrane's architecture intact and prevents excess water loss. In chronic dehydration, additional amounts of cholesterol will continue to be produced by the liver cells and poured into the circulation for the common use of all cells that do not possess the power to manufacture their own. The additional cholesterol will also make the cell wall impervious to the passage of water that naturally takes place in a normally well-hydrated cell. 

To prevent excess cholesterol deposits by the cells lining the arteries and the liver, you need to drink regularly an ample amount of water a half hour before food intake. By this action, the cells of the body will become well hydrated before confronting the concentrated blood after food intake. There will also be enough water for the processes of digestion and respiration, without needing to tap into the water held inside the cells lining the blood vessels. 

After a period of regulating daily water intake so that the cells gradually become fully hydrated, the cholesterol defense system will be required less, and its production will decrease. In light of this information, the range of normal blood cholesterol will probably prove to be far less than the values quoted at present. It is now becoming apparent that effective reduction of cholesterol levels in the circulating blood could promote a clearing of already formed deposits. 

I had occasion to advise a man in his early forties whose angiogram had revealed partial blockage of his coronary arteries. The blockage was such that he had developed chest pains. I advised him not to have bypass surgery without first trying a conservative treatment for his condition. He agreed to adjust his daily water intake and to begin by taking two glasses (just under one pint) of water exactly half an hour before each meal. I advised him to walk one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening (to start with, twenty to thirty minutes at the beginning, increasing gradually to one hour). 

I explained that research has shown that the hormone-sensitive, fat-digesting enzymes become activated after the first hour of walking, and remain active for twelve hours. The reason for the twice-daily walk was the need to activate the fat-burning enzyme on a regular basis and for its recognized cumulative action. Three months later the man went to one of the famous centers in Houston for a final checkup and an assessment of his need for bypass surgery His new angiogram showed no sign of the previous blockage He no longer needed surgery. 

By the way, there is no 'bad' cholesterol because the body does not produce any 'bad' cholesterol to harm itself. 'Bad' cholesterol is a term coined by the pharmaceutical industry to sell their anti-cholesterol drugs. Drink enough plain water for your present body weight and your cholesterol level will be normal again. Follow the Water Cure Protocol Formula, daily.
